What is an online scanner? Some antivirus vendors maintain websites with free online scanning capability of the entire computer, critical areas only, local disks, folders or files. These online scanners are great if you would like a second opinion. Using a different scanner can help you find viruses that your resident scanner may have missed.
We have put together a list of some of the online virus scanners we could find. This list is not extensive and there may be some we have missed. If you know of any good ones then please let us know.
